The Ultimate Tape Archive (C64)

Welcome to the most complete Commodore 64 cassette archive that exists. By complete, we do not mean it's all the titles ever made, but all tapes are complete with coverscans and manuals all in one place for you to enjoy.

We have used Tape Manager V1.3 (https://csdb.dk/release/?id=172213) to organize the content, so that it can easily be used with the NOVA64 front end (https://csdb.dk/release/index.php?id=172356) which also has features to run the images on both emulators and real C64s.

You are free to distribute this archive to your friends, but it should always remain 100% free and kept away from any solutions that require any kind of registration or payment. Apart from that, we do not care much about what happens, as we consider this a piece
of history, OUR history. We will try to release updated versions of this archive regularly as we progress in the task of testing, cleaning and editing scans of the releases we acquire. Only images from known sources are included in this archive.

We hope you will have fun and find lots of great memories!

Signed,

The Ultimate Tape Archive Team
